to be the lucky filmmakers that ended up doing lord of the rings in the most per spec country in the world to shoot it i often said if any other direct never the world was doing the lord of the rings new ze lan was probably the location they would have gone to. >> stephen: it looks like you built it to make the movie. >> i can open my backyard and walk out into the yard. >> stephen: did you think of any other technical innovations that you weren't able to use in lord of the rings that you can use for the hobbit. for instance, the scene with gollum, he is in some ways better even than he was in the lord of the rings what is different about him. i can tell something. >> well, there are two things. physically he's got more muscles in his face, gollum, andy serkis has the same muscles that he had 10 years ago. a little older and more flabby though. but gollum we've put more muss pells under his skin around his eyes and mouth so that every subtle expression that andy makes can be accurately replicated in the gollum puppet which makes the form of capture accurate. >> stephen: it is an incredible
? > > well, opening weekend was gonna be big no matter what. the lord of the rings obviously has its fans---the books, clearly. and so the biggest december opening of all time is not that big a surprise actually and the worldwide numbers follow that. but i have a feeling that the length of the film and the lukewarm reaction---even people who are positive about it have some negative things to say about the way it was filmed and its length and it being stretched over three movies--- it's on;y a 300 page book. i have a feeling it's not going to do as well domestically as the other lord of the rings films but like spiderman and ice age earlier this year the worldwide numbers are still going to be huge. > > it has a big fan base. let's take a look at the weekend numbers from the box office. as mentioned, the hobbit bringing in 84 million dollars. incredible. the rise of the guardians at 7.1 million, lincoln at 7 million, skyfall still hanging in there at 6.5 million, and life of pi at 5.4 million. now, life of pi isn't doing great here in the united states but it's doing tremendously well in c
angeles, it is a swirling vortex of gay celebrity. we hate on the lord and everything he represents every minute of the day. we really stay up at night thinking of new ways to make war on christmas. frankly, i'm a mayan as you know. i celebrate the plumb id serpent god. this is my last day on tv. it is one of the most important ways you can destroy christmas is to build a step pyramid. tonight we'll be sacrificing someone and taking their heart out and feeding it to the sun. >> john: the mayans were only warning us about the movie 2012. but i feel the same way. every year, pnc bank calculates the cost of the items in the song the 12 days of christmas to figure out how much the lords a leaping and the partridge in a pear tree. it totals $25,431. if you wanted to give your true love all of that stuff from that song. that's up 4.8% from last year. in these tough times which necessities should americans cut back on? do we really need all of the lords a leaping? >> the lord asleeping part, i'm all for because if
. god bless them, they did the lord's work, they are great police officers and to hear the officer that was driving the radio car while the other officer was giving cpr to the baby because they couldn't wait for the ambulance, to hear him say the officer giving cpr was crying and telling the baby to come back, it made me to be commissioner representing the officer and the public. i would like to bring them back in january so everyone can meet them before they go up for their life saving award which i imagine is pretty many a slam dunk. >> i'll make sure that happens. >> on the second part, we are seeing an uptick from schools to having our officers come out and make an assessment. being the husband of a teacher, i know this is first and foremost of the teachers, they spent all weekend receiving emails from school officials how to handle things. how many requests have you had and what have we done and what are we prepared to do other than what you have already said? >> again, we have been working very closely with the unified school district, a lot of requests, some personal, som

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: karl frisch if the word ends tomorrow bye-bye, if not i'll see you have christmas. do you dress dexter for christmas? >> he has a down coat that i have been wanting him to wear for quite a while. he is more of a room and board dog, than an ikea dog. >> stephanie: all right. love you honey. happy holidays. >> you too. >> stephanie: representative karen bass next on the "stephanie miller show." ♪ >> announcer: stephanie miller. >> what about my part? what about the christmas queen? hum? are you going to let all of this beauty go to waste?

a number of studies, very large studies done with autistic children. dr. catherine lord spoke with one this morning "the new york times" and went through the whole thing thoroughly. the result of it is that there is less likelihood of a child with autism to have an aggression against other people than there is for typical children, so not only is there no evidence that supports the fact that they are violent to other people, but they are actually less violent towards other people than typical people and when you really get into these stories about violence and you see children or young adults, what you're going to see generally is people with alcohol or drug problems or some other situation. they're seven to ten times more likely to be violent than typical children and autistic children are less so. sometimes, they are self injurious, but rarely to other people. these kinds of generalizations are killing us. these parents of children with autism, they're frightened, angry. people are talking about you know, autism as though they're acquainted with it. they're using it as a generalizati
about how eminently achievable and measurable it was. and, lord, was it better than what the other people were offering. help me out. how did we get from there to staring down a terrible deal on the fiscal freakout? a deal proffered by the president that caves on taxes and cuts social security benefits and eliminates payroll tax relief and locks in highly favorable capital gains rates for mitt romney and his buddies? a deal that once again involves selling out the poor, the elderly, and the middle class so the rich in this country can be spared sharing even a tiny slice of the pain. let me walk you through the steps. maybe i missed something. so the president has sky high approval ratings and congressional republicans are still hanging on at like 12% approval. all right. american people backed democratic priorities regarding taxes and entitlements by overwhelming margins, and they're set to blame republicans for the fiscal fiasco going south. whatever happened to democrats are holding all the cards in this negotiation and republicans from ann coulter to rush limbaugh to tom cole ad
, solomon should have known, fear the lord is the beginning of wisdom. in the early days of our country , people sought wisdom through prayer. the constitutional convention when they could not reach an agreement after nearly five weeks, ben franklin stood up and the contentiousness stopped and someone wrote that george washington looked like he had a relieved look on his face. 80-year-old ben franklin, overweight, gout, arthritis, had problems getting up and down sometimes, but his mind was still brilliant and that's when he pointed out that he had not once thought of applying to the father of lights to illuminate. we have his speech because he recorded it and wrote it in his own handwriting and madison was talking notes but we have franklin's speech and it has provided such solace to me. he pointed out he pointed out to his friends that there were time, everyone could remember, back in the revolution, they asked god for specific things and god answered their prayers. and he said these words. he said, our prayers were heard and they were graciously answered. if a sparrow cannot fall to
